Simple yet striking, the barely-there Athena thong sandal is an easy, elevated everyday option that screams SUMMER. Featuring a handbraided leather ankle strap, this thong sandal pairs perfectly with maxi dresses, linen slacks, and short shorts alike. 

Uppers are made with vegetable tanned and chromium free Italian leathers. The strap is made from the same leather and is handbraided.
Finished with Laiik's signature stacked cuoio leather sole and rubber outer sole.
Handmade in Greece

The best thing you can do to protect, restore, and heal your shoes is to condition them with an all-natural, semi-thick wax or leather dressing.

When buying a new pair of vegetable tanned shoes, avoid wet weather for the shoes during the first few weeks. Exposure to the sun, to the oils in your skin and to wear give the fibers in the leather ample time to become more flexible, resilient and less likely to react to water.

If your shoes do get wet: Pat the surface dry with a lint-free towel, stuff in some loose paper and let dry naturally. Do not expose to heat (like a hair dryer) or to direct sunlight.

The Athena thong t-back sandal fits true-to-size, with an adjustable handbraided buckled strap for that perfect fit. If you find yourself between sizes, we recommend that you size up. If the sandals feel a little snug, the vachetta leather will mold to your foot with wear.
